Wednesday links — Recruiting updates, and more

The scheduling news this morning meant delaying getting the morning links/notes posted. But here they are. …

Mike Farrell of Rivals.com has lots of good recruiting stuff in his weekly column, including a prediction that Bellevue High LB and UCLA commit Myles Jack will flip to Washington. However, since then it has been reported that Jack has received an offer from Georgia and will apparently visit there this week. He is originally from Georgia (explained in this story from our paper last weekend) and that school has long been thought a real wildcard if it actually offered. So sounds like UW now has to worry about not only luring Jack away from the commitment he gave to UCLA months ago and that he said again this week is solid, but also a new offer from a school  that is apparently a childhood favorite.

– FoxSportsNext.com is reporting that DE Daeshon Hall, who was one of the seven to commit to UW last June, will announce hiis final decision on signing day. Hall, a Seattle native who played this year in Lancaster, Texas, has since visited TCU and Texas A&M will reportedly choose between UW and those  two Texas schools.

— UW commits Dane Crane and Troy Williams are on the CalHiSports.com all-state first team. Joe Mathis and John Ross are on the second team and Darrell Daniels, Demore’ea Stringfellow, Elijah Qualls and Connor O’Brien are on the third team (the second and third teams are here).

— Here’s the Scout.com story with the details that RB Gerard Wicks, a WSU commit, will not visit UW, contrary to some other reports.

— UW coach Steve Sarkisian mentioned  in an ESPN story on coaches who know how to close.

— Lots of links from the ESPN Pac-12 blog.

— The ESPN Pac-12 blog  also examines how players who had something to prove in 2012 performed on the field.
